2:06 am
we had a wonderful time. got home and guess what had happened? >> what happened? >> not only are the daffodils full out, they're out, and some of the trees starting to put outdoor furniture outside. what a thrill! for city people it's, like, yeah. come on, we put them away for like six months and then all of a sudden -- >> you take the chairs out, baby. >> we don't have cushions out yet. don't go crazy. >> good. doesn't it feel nice? >> it's like there's hope. hope springs eternal. >> i feel sorry for this first girl we're going to talk about today. amanda still, 19 years old. this young lady was in atlanta. and you guys, it's happened to all of us. we've accidentally dropped our cell phone somewhere. hers fell down the trash chute of her building. she was tossing out some garbage. she looked down the chute and thought, you know what? i can get it. i can get it. >> she must have seen it. >> she could see it so she stuck her head in and dove in the trash chute. i have a similar one. >> same thing.
2:07 am
>> dove in, got stuck between the second and first floors. the fire department had to come. 911 was called, obviously. she was trapped for an hour dangling her head first. >> at this point you think she cares more about how she looks or what it smells like? what do you think's bothering her the most at this point? >> she didn't get her phone back. >> go all the way down. go down to the trash floor and get it out of the trash. >> she must have seen it lodged or something. we asked our facebook people what you guys -- where have you lost your cell phone? we got a wide variety of answers. >> some of them we can't even discuss because they are so disgusting. most of the time it's a toilet involved. >> that's what happens. it slips out of your hand when you're in the bathroom. you had that, didn't you? >> it's really none of your business. yes, it's happened to me. more than that, we wear microphones, and we have these pads that we wear. and we love it when we have to go to our sound guys and go oh, by the way -- >> it slipped off.
2:08 am
>> it's a little damp. >> if you do ever drop your cell phone in the toilet, they say that the best way to save it -- >> put it in your bowl of rice sitting right there. >> have a bowl of dry rice. they have it at manicure places because oftentimes people drop their phones when they're getting a pedicure or something. one guy, this is nasty. should we say it? >> yeah, you do it. you're good at it. >> a friend of his dropped it in a port-a-potty. and then went after it. blah. >> kara leone dropped hers in a woodburning stove. it didn't make calls afterwards. really? but she was able to at least see her contact. here's the thing. aren't you supposed to back up everything with a back -- with a plan "b," right? >> i don't have that. >> why am i not surprised? >> i really don't. if i lost my phone -- and the thing is, again, because i don't remember anybody's phone number anymore except for my mom's. >> yep. >> and probably one or two others. that's it. i mean, i'd be out of luck without my phone. >> doesn't kathy, your
2:09 am
assistant, have all the numbers? >> i guess some of the work related ones are in mine. >> she's always out with foot problems. we want to say hello to her. she's at home recuperating from my foot doctor. she's out of feet, though. that's the good news. she's had both feet done now. >> kathy, we're glad you're back. she's back at work. >> i have good news. >> oh. >> i have to say the good news. you know how once in a while great things happen for nice, nice people. >> what happened? >> chef matt out in grand rapids, right? at the reserve restaurant has been nominated for a james beard award. do you know what that is? it's a restaurant that's off the beaten track in grand rapids. i'm happy for him. >> congrats to him. good for you. if you want to know if your boyfriend/husband is a cheater, there is an app for that. >> of course there is. >> now, here's the deal. we're going to tell you about the app. there are ten questions that have been compiled, very simple
2:10 am
questions that they say will determine whether your significant other is a cheater. okay? here are the questions. get ready. is he an extrovert or an introvert? >> i said it a different way. i just decided, you know what? who would a dream man be? so i did it that way. >> okay. so extrovert? >> no. >> introvert. you did introvert. >> i'm extroverted enough for anybody. >> does he earn more than $75,000? >> in new york, that's not a lot of money. >> the answer is yes. how high is his education level? is it high school? college? or advanced degrees? >> i just want advanced degree for fun. >> same here. how old is he? okay. >> about my age. >> all right. what kinds of physique does he have? >> athletic? because there was chubby, athletic and really buff. >> i like chubby. what kind of town was he raised in? urban? >> i said suburban. what did you say? >> i said urban.
2:11 am
>> really? >> yes, i said urban. okay. what kind of -- >> keith urban? just kidding. >> what kind of car does he drive? >> i said a nice sedan. not flashy but elegant. >> i said a ford. has he ever cheated or been cheated on in his past? >> i said yes. one time by a woman, broke her heart so he knows how it feels. >> okay, good. so was he ever cheated on, though? >> he was cheated on. he was cheated on so he knows how it feels. >> what's his commitment history? that's another question. >> married but amicably divorced. >> same. how many sexual partners has he had in the past? >> just less than me. >> the choices are -- the numbers are pretty astonishing for that, around they? >> not if you're dating charlie sheen. >> okay. all right. so -- and they sound like very basic questions. so when you and i both took the quiz, and our results are -- we don't even know what they are. >> we both got a "c," so he's on the fence. >> he's not a definite cheater. >> here's the thing.
2:12 am
obviously the longer you live, the more opportunities you have to cheat. the more options you have in life, meaning the more money and the more people around, you have more opportunities to cheat. >> yep. >> it seems to me. so, you know. and then i know some people that have lived on a farm with their nearest neighbor, 20 miles away, and he's cheated. so there's no -- >> and half the country's marriages are ending in divorce, the chances are that most people who take this quiz -- i mean, everybody's taken it so far has been on the fence or the guy's a cheater, which is probably true. >> because there's only one billy graham in the world. "glamour" did this survey. this was, i thought, kind of shocking. they asked how many guys have accidentally said "i love you" before they meant it. and they said that half -- half of the men said they accidentally said it either when they were drinking too much or when they were having sex. >> or when they said it because they wanted sex. >> yes. or they said it to get sex. >> yeah, yeah.
2:13 am
and they're the ones, amazingly enough, who end up cheating later once they get you. >> and their greatest fear, men's greatest fear, which is not death, a lot of women think it is, but they say it's poverty. >> well, some guys should fear death more after they cheat. because sometimes you want to kill them. >> yeah. and also, probably an older guy would be more concerned with death. >> yeah, that's the thing with these. you have to know -- i mean, what are you worried about, jerry? come over here, please, for a moment. you're our target guy. you represent every man to everyone. yes. huh? no, come on over here, my darling. speak into my bosom because that's where my microphone is. what's your question? >> i don't remember. >> death or poverty? >> poverty. absolutely. i have a family to raise. >> but what if you were older and your kids are -- >> if you're closer to death, you worry about death, but i'm not that close yet. >> how old are you, jer? >> 55. >> you've got a couple of years.
2:14 am
speed limit. ooh, i like that. jerry's the speed limit. or he's a speed bump to somebody. >> it's a sad day today. you know why? >> oh, yeah. >> the encyclopedia britannica has just stopped the presses it. that's it. >> anybody under 30 out there is going what? what's the problem? but after 244 years -- >> yeah, they decided it's going out of print. it came out every two years and they would update it. the way the world is now with information and things being update -- >> on a daily basis. >> it is kind of antiquated. by the way, it is so expensive. 1400 bucks for the encyclopedia. we used to have the world book encyclopedia. >> right. i think i had that one. >> the britannica? >> i forget. i just remember you couldn't do a term paper back in my day unless you had that. and my kids would not even know what the heck i was talking about. >> but here's the funny thing. a lot of people go to wikipedia because it sounds like an encyclopedia, but that stuff
2:15 am
could be changed by any mary smith on the street. >> keep in mind there's stuff on there that's not true at all. i'm not saying it was put on on purpose. it's not authenticated in any way. as you say, anybody can put stuff on there. >> you can go in there and change whatever you want. >> don't use that as a source for stuff, especially about me. we have a fun contest coming up. it's a voice contest. >> yes, yes, yes. >> we are starting to get submissions. and by that i mean we got one, i think. sara's going to tell us all about it. >> yeah, we did our voice contest last year, and it was a hit. this year there's a little spin. we're doing it with kids that are 18 to 16 years old. the winner will come with one guardian or parent to actually sing, and they'll get to meet and greet one of the judges from "the voice." but i think our judges are the best so it doesn't matter. logon to you have to be singing a cappella. >> no music.
2:16 am

>> you do admit it ain't brain surgery. >> it's harder than it looks. >> tell us why. >> you film 24 hours a day. usually the jersey shore is for a vacation on the weekends. we do it every single night for two months straight. it gets a little tough. >> also we don't have like a cell phone. we don't have anything but each other. >> the whole world. >> do you lose a sense of reality when you're doing reality television? >> all the time. >> do you forget they're even there after a while and you start saying shoot, i wish i hadn't said that or done that? >> we were just discussing that. last time we were here, i was telling you i was going to italy. we can't even think -- it wasn't even real that we were there. >> he's, like, yeah, we lived by the carousel. oh, my god, i forgot that. >> your life's been documented and you kind of miss it because you can't be all the way present. you had a few medical issues, didn't you, vinny, you had issues with anxiety. >> yeah. >> and how are you doing? >> i'm fine. i was set off that week, and
2:23 am
unfortunately it was while i was there filming. there's no escape. that's our real life 24 hours a day. >> when you say "set off," honey, what happened? >> i was just anxious because we filmed in italy for two months. and then we were told that we were going right to jersey. so i hadn't slept in, like, weeks, you know. >> yeah. >> i was drinking every day. and for me, you know, a trigger gets set up in my mind where i turn into a miserable, different person, you know. and unfortunately, like i said, it was that week. >> deena, you helped out. you really came in and sort of helped lift him up. >> i tried. because vinny was one of the closest people in the house to me. and i go through anxiety also. he would kind of help me out when i was going through it. so i was, like, oh, my god. >> you know what i do for anxiety, vin? >> what do you do? >> i read my bible. why don't you all at the jersey shore at the house and get together and do a bible study. >> we couldn't have any books. >> you're not allowed to read? >> not the bible.
2:24 am
talk about anxiety. >> all we really have is each other. >> i think that's called a sweatshop, people. >> people always think it's in the house and just drinking. but no, sometimes we're not drinking, and it's so hard because you have the cameras on you from the minute you wake up to the minute you go to sleep. and if you get up when you're sleeping, they still see you, and they come in with the cameras. >> when do those guys sleep? >> they don't. >> there's someone on call 24 hours a day. >> snooki is on the cover of "us weekly," one of the highest selling ever. she's pregnant, announced that she's getting married. you're tight with her. tell us a little about that. >> she's very excited. this is what she's wanted for a while deep down inside. she's happy with gianni, so good for her. >> what's he like, gianni? >> gianni is cool. quiet. >> decent guy? >> i guess. >> he seems it. we don't really know that much. >> the last time she said on, i said you know what you need to do, snooks, take it from a mother figure. start valuing yourself. don't give yourself away to every jerk that comes along. what does she do? >> she did.
2:25 am
>> she really loves him. but, i mean, i don't know gianni like that. like i know him from coming to the house. i sometimes see him out, but it's not like that level that i really know. >> is this going to change the show, do you think? >> i think so. >> it could. but the thing is, it doesn't revolve around snooki. it's all of us in the house, so i don't see why we wouldn't be able to film again without her. >> because there's no place for a kid, you guys agree with that? >> yes. >> no place for an infant. >> maybe we could throw a little baby shower before she pops out a little meatball. >> turn the smush room, put a crib in there, decorate it. >> from smush to snush. >> do you think she's matured since all this news has come out? >> you know, you can say what you want about her, that she's a mess, but this is reality. i think what will mature you real quick, being pregnant. i don't know. i've never been pregnant, but i can imagine. >> you want anxiety. >> everybody sees one side -- like you see my party side. you see nicole's party side. there's other sides to us that

2:37 am
and to those who don't, lucky them, they get a copy of kathie lee's cd. here to help me out is ryan, the host of ireland's "the late late late show" and the author of "jfk in ireland: four days that changed a president." the longest-running talk show in the world. >> in the world, ever. the planet earth. >> i love it. >> yes. nice to be here. >> you, too. >> this lovely lady is from newtown, connecticut. how many pints of guiness are consumed internationally on st. patrick's day? 10 million? 12 million? 13 million? or 15 million? >> oh, gosh. i'll say 15. >> oh, no, i'm so glad you got that wrong! >> oh, yes, the kathie lee cd. the correct answer, ryan, is actually? >> 13 million which is generally how many i'd have on a saturday night, but on st. patrick's week, we change that. i'm sorry she got the wrong answer. guinness is very popular. they say in ireland there's both eating and drinking it.
2:38 am
>> a meal. >> we consider it a meal. look at me. i'm well nourished. >> back across to cath. >> this lovely young lady is from texas. she's all dressed up for a party. a leprechaun is actually an irish what? a shoe maker? banker? magician? or a thief? >> a banker. >> did you say banker? you are adorable, and you are a proud owner of a new kathie lee cd. >> yes, she is. the correct answer here, shoe maker. >> some would say they are bankers given what they've been doing recently. by all accounts, shoe makers are unemployed dwarfs. >> okay. back across. >> i bet you this lady from iowa will know the answer to this. true or also, erin go bragh means let's drink. >> wrong. >> i told you. don't mess with this woman. >> i was going to say, she's a tough cookie over there. that, of course, is false.
2:39 am
>> it's false. there's great expressions in ireland. my favorite is may the rose rise ahead of you. i don't know why they say that because if the road rides ahead of you, it's the hills. there's another great one which president obama said when he was in ireland recently, which translates as "yes, we can." there's an irish expression for everything. erin go bragh, ireland forever and over. >> back across to kath. >> colleen, if you're out there in america watching this, dean has a message for you. all right? all right. in the meantime, this gentleman from tennessee, how many americans are named patrick? 1 in 100? 1 in 160? 1 in 200? or 1 in 260? >> "b." >> yeah. yeah. >> wow! that was a good guess. 1 in 160.

2:41 am
politely i love you but i'm not going to eat that. some good irish stew or lamb. corned beef, there was a time. but i'm glad to say -- >> that time has passed. >> come on. >> moving on. ryan, thank you for coming to see us. good luck with your show. not that you need it. >> you always have luck. happy st. patrick's day and thanks for having me. >> my pleasure. are your kids always getting the upper hand in an argument? kathie lee will come back across the street, and we'll talk about how you can regain control right after this. do your lashes want volume or length? how about both? with covergirl lashblast fusion. a mascara for lashes that want it all... all at once. our biggest brush meets our fiberstretch formula to bring you a blast of volume and length. lashes that want it all want lashblast fusion. from easy, breezy, beautiful covergirl. make a splash with water resistant lashblast fusion.

2:44 am
2:45 am
children really know how to push their parents' buttons to a point where they give in or they argue, pretty much. >> yes, but susan is the author of "parenting without power struggles." she says you can raise your child without battles by following her techniques. where were you when i needed you? >> where was i when i needed you? >> we talk so much about parenting and how we feel like the kids rule the roost. >> asylum. >> yeah, when you're watching how parents deal with their kids, clearly they're not the
2:46 am
ones in charge. >> no, and we need to be. our kids want and need us to be what i call the captain of the ship. >> we're doing them a disservice. we love our children so much. if you really love them, then discipline them, right? >> because the truth is we're not raising children. we're raising adults. >> well, show us some good techniques. >> three things. >> hand signals. hand signals. >> so this represents the parent. the parent in charge. and this is the child. this is how it's supposed to go where the child says, i want some cake. sweetie, not right now. why not? watch carefully. because you won't eat your dinner. yes, i will. no, i gave you cake last night and you didn't eat. but that's because this is where you have the pushing and the pushing back. nobody's in charge. i call this the two lawyers. >> yes. >> and then it goes worse. if you don't give me cake, i'm not going to do my homework. yes, you are. >> they become the dominant one. >> and down here the way you know you're here is you're bribing and threatening and nobody's in charge. that's where you're not at your best parenting. >> show us how it should be. >> same scenario. >> i want some cake.
2:47 am
